The influx of expatriates to Gulf regions will push demand for healthcare services up by 240 per cent, Health Insurance and Protection Magazine has reported.
A combination of population growth, rising life expectancy and higher rates of chronic diseases will place increasing stresses on the areas infrastructure, it noted.
The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) – which includes Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, the UAE and Saudi Arabia – is making "far-reaching economic reforms to improve their business climates to attract investors", says the magazine.
Brits considering moving to the region should look into overseas insurance and international medical cover before they move.
According to data compiled in 2007, GCC governments spent far less (between two and four percent GDP) on their health care sectors, compared to an average of eight per cent in Europe and 11.3 per cent in the US.
